Green Homes Grants
The Green Homes Grant is closed for new applicants, but you can still use this service if all of the following apply:

Energy Company Obligation
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government energy efficiency scheme designed to tackle fuel poverty and help reduce carbon emissions.
Under ECO you may be able to get help to pay for energy saving improvements from your energy supplier, such as insulation work or boiler repairs or replacement.
You may qualify for this assistance if you are either:
- claiming certain benefits and live in private housing (either as a homeowner or renting from a private landlord)
- or live in social housing
For more information about the initiative and eligibility criteria speak to your energy supplier, or visit:

Installing solar panels on your roof will help cut your home’s carbon emissions, and your energy bills.
Using a group buying scheme, Solar Together helps homeowners buy solar panels at competitive prices. You can register your interest for free and will be contacted with an offer from the chosen supplier once the auction closes. You then have six weeks to decide whether to proceed, but there is no obligation to accept the offer.
